The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law is pleased to announce that Tenille E. Brown has been appointed as an Assistant Professor on tenure track, effective July 1, 2020.
Tenille Brown holds an LL.M. from the University of Ottawa. Her LL.M. focused on Aboriginal law and considered what was then the Draft Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Her LL.B. (Scots law) (Honours) is from the University of Dundee, Scotland. Her doctoral research is in the area of legal geography examining the intersection between property, geography and the creation of place in Canada.
She is a member of the Ontario bar and the Human Rights Research and Education Centre at the University of Ottawa. Her work at the Samuelson-Glushko Canadian Internet Policy & Public Interest Clinic, Canada’s leading public interest technology law clinic, contributed to interventions at the Supreme Court of Canada in the area of privacy law. Before starting her academic work, Tenille worked in the Kingdom of Eswatini (at that time known as the Kingdom of Swaziland), Southern Africa, as a legal officer in a feminist organization. Tenille comes to us from an adjunct professor position in the Common Law and Civil Law Sections of the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa.
“Tenille is a great addition to our Faculty. Her expertise in Aboriginal law is an excellent fit with our mandate area of Aboriginal and Indigenous Law and her innovative research will contribute significantly to our growing research profile,” says Dean Jula Hughes.
